Miscellany Toronto Photographs: Then and Now

I so wish I could see the photos but it seems that many of the images lately have been replaced with a box that says "Sorry. This person moved or deleted this image photobucket

:~(
 
What happened to the images?

Paul

Sorry, all. I was uploading images on the Photobucket app on my IPhone and inadvertently moved the album to a sub-album, thereby breaking all the links (arrrgh!!!). Anyone have any quick solutions short of me re-editing all my posts for the last 6 months?
 
I don't have Photobucket, so I don't know if this will work, but can you cut it from the sub-album and paste it back to where it was?

The fries were ordinary enough but the sandwich used meat off a roasted chicken - like the meat in the hot chicken sandwich [sliced white bread, gravy, peas] that used to be available at Swiss Chalet. Terrific; as was the cole slaw. I won't say 'slaw'; that's so American.

I grew up in Ohio and it was always "cole slaw." Just "slaw" must be a regionalism.
 
I hope Mustapha doesn't mind me doing one...

I've posted this picture in a couple threads now but I recently got an accompanying "Now" shot, so I thought you guys would appreciate it.

Then.

CN Tower and First Canadian Place under construction, the rail yards dominate Toronto south of Front (1975):

Now.

Streetview image of approximately the same location. Sorry for the lesser quality:

Interesting how thoroughly the Nedco on Front was resurrected and restored without a prompt...
